Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19651047C1] The printing head comprises individual modules (1-3) each having an ink connecting pipe (4-6). A common adaptor (7) is provided for the modules and is formed as a fluid distributor element on one side set elastically on the ink connecting pipe and on the other having a connecting pipe (75) for attachment to an ink tube leading to the ink tank. Each module has an ink printing module (11-31) with flanks (1111) at the ends for fluid mechanical coupling with the associated ink connecting pipe. The ink printing modules have a common supply channel for feeding ink printing chambers. A pressure compensating membrane (72) is provided as an ink-resistant flexible plastics foil on the basic member (71) of the adaptor.
